Al Pacino and Donald Sutherland angered the crew one day because of a conversation. On one of the locations, there was one road that led in and out. One day, Pacino and Sutherland began talking about their work while blocking the entrance to the road. Crew members could not come or go and the conversation went on and on. They finally moved out of the way when a huge line of angry people developed behind them. See more »
In battle, the British soldiers are depicted taking short steps; in reality, Redcoats were trained to take long paces, so as to close the range quickly. See more »

I have only seen this film on VHS, and hope that it will be available on DVD in Region 1 (why not?). It was far better than The Patriot as a representation of the Revolutionary War. The acting performances of Al Pacino and Donald Sutherland were outstanding, and I cannot understand the criticism levied at this movie. I think reviewers tend to have stereotypes about what they think an actor can or should do, and they pan a truly original, creative, outstanding performance. This opinion is shared by others that I know who have seen the film. I am reminded of the terrible reviews of other GREAT films, including Last of the Mohicans and, more recently, Apocalypto. These are all great films worth watching more than once. Also, Revolution is my favorite Natassia Kinski film.
